Carnaby quits Seppelt for top job at Wicks Estate

 

Former Seppelt chief winemaker Adam Carnaby has been appointed chief winemaker at Wicks Estate in the Adelaide Hills. 

Carnaby's impressive CV includes spells at Yering Station with Tom Carson and a spell at Xanadu in Margaret River. He has also had overseas experience in Champagne and Burgundy.

He moved Seppelt at Great Western in Victoria in 2011, producing some outstanding wines under difficult corporate circumstances. 

“We are  thrilled to announce Adam as chief winemaker at Wicks Estate - and are excited for what the future holds,” Wicks Estate director Simon Wicks said.

“His experience across all our key varietals and his knowledge of vineyard, terroir and winemaking along with an enormous passion for wine will be a great asset for the Wicks brand.” 

Carnaby said: “I’m extremely excited to be joining the team at Wicks and look forward to working with premium Adelaide Hills fruit from the estate vineyard. It’s paramount that wine be regionally expressive and have a sense of place."

Wicks Estate is a family owned and operated wine company producing hand crafted wines from their vineyard and winery at Woodside. As a vertically integrated company, it controls the wine making process from vineyard to winery.
